I agree there's better sources of vegetarian protein, this however could help someone adapt to that diet. Personally with so many excellent recipe sites about, there's no excuse not to eat a healthy diet. I've eaten Quorn but it's effectively processed food, not suitable for people who can't eat gluten either.

You're right. It's made from genetically modified ingredients, long term effects unknown. It's actually a mushroom/fungus derivative and is highly processed. I await clinical trials..

I see the Quorn FUD brigade are out as expected. Quorn has been around for decades (29 years), and there is no evidence it is anything less than a perfectly valid, healthy source of protein. The effects are known. There are no side effects. If there were, 29 years and millions of people eating it every year would have shown it. I have looked, hard, and found absolutely none.

The only information you're going to find is FUD put out by meat farmers associations corporate shills, where they put out numbers which have exactly zero scientific value. Like some random poll of 1000 people, with no sources, or information on their methods, etc.

Sorry to say, but if you think Quorn has any kind of health danger, over any other normal food, then you've been suckered in by the propaganda of people associated with manufacturing it's alternatives.

Actually I must correct you.. Their own website states that there are side-effects. The most common being flatulence..

Quoted as;

14 Does eating Mycoprotein cause any side effects?
The only side effect which may occur after eating Quorn™ products is that in common with other fibre containing foods some flatulence may develop in susceptible individuals - this generally only occurs after the first few times of eating the products and soon disappears.

Hah, ok, it is a high fibre food, and like all high fibre foods, it might make you fart at first...fair point ;P

Though you do use the plural of side effect, and it should be the singular. Farting is the most common because it is the only side effect.

And abdominal bloating is the second side effect.. Occurs prior to flatulence..

The plural is due to anecdotal evidence ie from what I myself have experienced after having too much Quorn in a day. So no evidence base but still important I guess...

In fact just type Quorn and Bloating into Google and all will be self explanatory ..

It doesn't agree with everyone, but no more than any other common foods.
Eg if I eat a lot of brussel sprouts I get crazy gas and think i'm going to explode, but it just doesn't agree with me (in the quantities i'd like to eat it).

You can have allergic reactions to it too, but no more likely than other normal foods, infact vastly less than many commonly consumed foods.

Anecdotal evidence isn't important at all really.

All negative statements that people make about quorn tend to be explained on their website:

The foods standards agency states that “research estimates that between 1 in 100,000 to 200,000 people will react to it” (Quorn ™ products).

Mycoprotein is high in protein and fibre which may cause intolerance in some people. All protein foods have the potential to cause an adverse reaction in some consumers, about one in 200 people are thought to be intolerant to soya for example.

It is not made from GM ingredients at all, not sure where you got that lie from. Unless you can show some evidence otherwise?

Of course people still seem to think there is some kind of conspiracy despite approval by the FDA and FSA to name a few but what do they know. (_;)

To be fair the Quorn chicken does taste pretty bad, the 'beef' pies, sausages and mince especially are all lovely though.

The SFC burgers are nice

A simple google search will answer all the queries...

Simply type in 'Quorn' and 'GM' or 'chemicals'...

Their website is hardly going to be objective about these issues..

I can google oranges and cancer and I'm sure there will be a website warning you never to touch an orange. There is a huge amount of misinformation on the Internet but people always seem to believe the first thing they see.

You should provide some evidence as I can google what you say but I'm not sure what makes you think what you think.

"Real" food is also a combination of proteins, fats and other molecules which get broken down in your body. Quorn really isn't much different, it's not muck it's a perfectly viable source of food for many and is produced using fermentation same as beer and bread. Also approved by several food authorities. :)

Ok so here's a summary:

http://skeptics.stackexchange.com/questions/8102/is-mycoprotein-quorn-safe-for-human-consumption

Make up your own minds.

The scientists out there will ask for credible evidence. All I can say that just because there's no evidence that something is harmful is not the same as saying there's evidence to say it's safe.

Just my 2-pence worth..

Anyway, my Quorn SFC burgers are in the oven as we speak... Yummy

Besides it's up to the individual what they want and don't want to do.

Some people say that smoking is harmful. Evidence? Well there isn't any direct evidence as for this you would need to carry out a randomised control study (RCT). You do see a lot more lung and heart problems and cancers in people that smoke, no doubt. Genetics obviously plays a role.

But you also get 90 year olds who have smoked for their entire lives with no health problems whatsoever.

So make your own minds up...

A summary of what exactly? "Evidence"?

I have found an even better source of "evidence" here from the controversial CPSI which despite it's name is not a scientific institute.

The "medical" evidence:
1)The Quorn manufacturers unpublished study - Small sample size 200.
2) Second study, sample size 100 and no detrimental effects - another company sponsored study that showed no reactions - i.e. the results were unrepeatable. However bias is shown - the researcher still believes Quorn is problematic despite the experiments showing the contrary therefore dismissing their own research.
3) 10 preselected allergic reactions - poor testing for allergies and no controls or double-blinding - even CSPI admit the tests were inaccurate
4) A letter - should not be used as conclusive evidence.
5) 1 person had an allergic reaction - Not even Quorn denies portions can cause allergic reactions. However this is 1 patient in 1 paper.
6) Letter written by CSPI - should not be used as evidence especially since biased.
7) Another allergic reaction - similar to 5)
8 - Letter written by CSPI
9) see 7)

CSPI has over 1500 reports of allergic reactions and they claim it means quorn is dangerous. 1500 out of how many people? Millions of people that consume quorn. This is exactly in line with the large scale research by the FSA (Food standards agency) that showed "between 1 in 100,000 to 200,000 people will react to it”.

Like most of the "science" on the internet, CSPI is using misinformation, exaggeration and simply unscientific methods to make it's claims.

It it sort of is. You can't say "well it's true but there could eventually be evidence to show otherwise so it might still be false" as it's just a logical fallacy and no conclusions or progress would ever be made. It's like saying we have lots of evidence that the world is round but we should consider the people that say that the world is flat as for all we know it could be flat. If you can't believe a conclusion based on the majority of evidence and academic consensus then how can you believe the opposite based on a minority of evidence and with no academic support? If that is your way of thinking, "we should be open to all information", how can you believe or make conclusions about anything at all?

Everyone should be asking for credible evidence not just scientists, the problem is not everyone can properly analyse and criticise the evidence they read, CSPI and quorn being a perfect example.

Of course it's up to the individual, however I don't like when people make their minds up from a small amount of misinformation. ;)
No direct evidence smoking is harmful, really? Here is a small summary of some of the vast amounts of evidence.

Of course you get 90 year olds smoking 24/7 that are fine but that is what statistics are about. Smoking increases your chances of cancer significantly but because 1 person defied the odds doesn't mean smoking isn't bad for you and the evidence is wrong and we should reconsider everything.

TLDR - If you read all this well done, I don't expect it to change your mind on anything but I hope you will at least consider being more critical in what you read and from what source. :)

If you can avoid mercola.com too you will do fine. :p

Yrrb88, I take your point.

I am just stating the obvious. All scientists should be sceptical about what they hear/read. P-values and statistical analyses etc are merely numbers. Decisions need to be made on many factors not just 'numerical evidence'..

Like I said before, it's up to each individual what they decide and they need to make an informed choice..

CSPI should be ignored entirely. Not sure whose lining their pockets, but that's some seriously corrupt "science" they try to promote.

Sorry last ramble/food for thought I promise! :p

I would say a good scientist is far more critical than skeptical and scientists would glady change their minds about something if the evidence supported it but in this particular case it doesn't. As I say if you read the world is round are you skeptical that it isn't because a few people say otherwise or simply because you should be skeptical of everything? You might think that is a silly example however I am trying to say that there is a difference between healthy skepticism and being critical of evidence and sources. I would say be critical of what you read rather than skeptical, that way you can still be open to all the information available but distinguish between the good and the bad sources. Most importantly, and I think this is the main issue you are trying to make, is that you will to be able to draw your own conclusion based on sound reasoning and logic using evidence from viable sources.

Statistics are of course merely numbers but valid conclusions are drawn from many factors and a stastical anaylsis is one of those. For example, I can say that several studies show that smoking increases incidence of all cancers by a factor of 2.5 with a 95% confidence interval and p>0.05 which may aswell be jibberish. However I can conclude that smoking significantly increases the risk of contracting cancer. Just because a few people don't get cancer despite heavy smoking doesn't mean my conclusion is invalid or my evidence insignificant. If lots of valid studies show a small or neglible incidence of cancer then I would glady change my previous conclusion and it would warrant further research to draw a new conclusion.

Of course it is up to the individual, I have not disputed that nor would I but it is misinformation like what you have found that makes it hard for someone who is unaware it was misinformation to make a truly informed choice. The ability to be critical is far more important than skepticism imo.

A final example - about 1000 people in the US die each year from a preventable disease due to refusal of the vaccine simply because they are skeptical of it's safety mainly from things they read on the internet. If they were able to criticise the evidence supporting vaccines and the small amount of evidence against them, then although they might very well still draw the same conclusion regarding their safety, they would at least have the vaccine as the lesser of 2 evils.
